    The line between Mormon missionaries, chorus boys, and gay porn is so thin sometimes…

    how come no one is addressing the obvious, ie, best job of lipsynching ever.

    I used to work with a group of mormans, as a non-morman I was treated like a leper. These kids in this video could be clones of the kids I worked with, adorable blonde boys programmed like clones to get married and make babies. Totally devoid of humor or any sense of awareness of others beliefs or lack thereof. Very, very scary and unintentionally hilarious.

    sigh.
    well, i didnt hate it as much as i thought i would. it had an “energy” but leaves a lot of questions, to say the least.
    like living authentically and in an original way is hard when you have to know your lines in life

    GEE! Maybe I should not have turned them away from my door every time they showed up.

    And cue the trolls.
    Seriously, some of you guys need to allow just a tad of frivolous cuteness and talent through that crusty and bitter veneer from time to time.

    No lip-synching here. The cast recording was playing, but you can tell that they’re actually singing. (They’re all HS musical theater students from Wisconsin. You could look it up.)

    Indeed, they are sweet boys, but I never have understood why Mormon’s are particularly bashed when Catholics and Babtists are so much more present and odious. For satire, not to say ridicule, there’s a lot to work with.

    @uffda

    The musical doesn’t “bash” Mormons or faith for that matter. In fact, it celebrates faith, and most Mormons like it.

    The two guys in white t-shirts are adorable together. It’s like a matched set of twinks.

    • Because we know exactly who made it up and when. Same reason Scientology is openly mocked.

    • Because they are insular.

    • Googoo “lds naked touching” and “magic underwear”

    • The Mormon story tells a recent history of North America for which there is absolutely no evidence.

    Mormon Porn & Boy Scouts

    by Aaronita Smith

    Wayne Perry, Boy Scouts president, is pro-gay – and, believe it or not, MALE porn is officially part of his religion!
    Scholars, including Mormon ones, know of a hard-core porn sketch in the Mormon-approved “Book of Abraham.”
    This Book is part of the “Pearl of Great Price” which, along with the “Book of Mormon,” is LDS-authorized scripture.
    Figure 7 in Facsimile 2 in “Abraham” shows two beings facing each other. Joseph Smith described them as the “Holy Ghost” and “God” (the Father), the latter showing an erect male sex organ.
    Mormons were offended when Smith’s newspaper published this sketch in 1842, so the phallic part was whited out for more than a century until the “restored” LDS church restored the X-rated drawing in 1981!
    LDS scholars have hushed up the fact that the “Book of Abraham” is not about the biblical Abraham but actually portrays ancient Egyptian documents showing occult obscene sketches.
    Those scholars also know that Smith fraudulently altered them so that he could (blasphemously) portray the Christian trinity as sex fiends in order to promote polygamy among his followers!
    For more info see “Book of Abraham” (Wikipedia). And check out the Tanners’ “Mormonism – Shadow or Reality?” which reproduces the original Egyptian sketches Smith plagiarized and exploited. Also Yahoo or Google “Facts From Mormons (By a Utah Resident),” “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up,” and “USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans.”
